Title: Quantum Plasmonic Sensing Beyond the Classical Limit

Abstract

The ultimate sensitivity of any optically based measurement using classical resources (for example, laser or thermal light) is constrained by the photon shot noise limit (SNL). However, quantum states of light, in which photon pairs have quantum correlations or entanglement, off er a path beyond this limit. In particular, “squeezing” in these quantum states makes it possible to lower the noise in the detection system below the SNL. This can signifi cantly enhance the sensitivity of real-world devices and could thus revolutionize optical-based sensing applications
